AEC’s Hellcat Traverses the UK

The UK is known for its quiet country lanes, its tight, cobblestone streets that curve through the green countryside. Along these roads, you might hear the bleating of sheep or the pitter-patter of rain on the roofs of the many small villages that pop up along the way. For the past six months, though, a new sound has been heard in the UK: the distinct purr of one of the world’s most recognizable cars, the distinctly American, effortlessly cool muscle car – AEC’s Dodge Charger Hellcat. 

Cruising the countryside has never looked this cool.

Earlier this year, we teamed up with DriveTribe, a media production team based in the UK that focuses on automobiles and is beloved by car enthusiasts worldwide. DriveTribe is led by the legendary stars of the British TV show Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May, and Andy Wilman, all of whom are big fans of the kind of cars you don’t usually get across the pond. Connecting people with the cars they love, no matter where they are, is what we’re passionate about at AEC, so we did just that – we provided the DriveTribe team with AEC’s top-of-the-line Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody for one year! 

For the past six months, the DriveTribe team has been test driving our Hellcat all around the UK, and even through the Channel Tunnel to France, showing that it is in fact possible (and really cool) to drive one of THE American classics in Britain and on the European continent. Along the way, they’ve documented their experiences with AEC’s popular muscle car, giving their honest feedback on the vehicle and sharing their automobile expertise.

One thing to look forward to about going to work: getting there in a Hellcat.

We of course love all the different videos showcasing our star vehicle – see all the videos below and follow the links to watch.
